Serbian Anti-Corruption Agency tells N1 it is investigating Minister Stefanovic Izvor: N1

The Serbian Anti-Corruption Agency told N1 on Friday that it is looking into a possible conflict of interests in the case of Internal Affairs Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic and his father’s involvement in the arms trade.

According to documents leaked by whistleblower Aleksandar Obradovic (a Krusik munitions plant employee), the minister’s father Branko Stefanovic was involved in the purchase of mortar shells at privileged prices from Krusik.  

The agency response, which came weeks after N1 first asked if it was investigating the Krusik case, said that it was running “an initial check to see if the conditions have been met to launch proceedings”. N1 also contacted Agency Director Dragan Sikimic but he hung up the phone on Thursday.  

This is the first reaction from the Agency after information appeared about a possible conflict of interest several weeks ago. Journalists reporting the arms trade story have said that they tried and failed to get a response from the Agency.
